~ The Bella I am Now ~
Chapter 1 - Meeting the Family....

(A/N Don't be confused, the main character is Bella, Riley if just what she calls herself now, so don't be put off....")

My name is Riley, just Riley, and I'm an 83 year old woman trapped inside a 16 year old vampires' body. Some of you may have known me as Isabella Swan, or Bella. But I haven't called myself that since I was changed, no I haven't been called Bella since I met Damon, Adrian, and Sam. The three other people that make up our wonderful coven, which I was the only girl in. Ironic. You see we are all part of a band, many bands; we’re always changing our name and look once we think that the band has lived out its life. Damon and I were both singers. Adrian was a guitarist, and Sam was a drummer.

Damon, he was a 209 year old vampire with curly brown hair and beautiful topaz eyes. He looked about 21 rugged, manly, the eldest in age and looks of all of us. Also Damon was my mate, and my newest love. You see Damon changed me while I was out walking in the forest one night. Jake was supposed to meet me, it was after…they….left so there were no more territory lines, but I guess old Billy Black was still bent, and he wouldn’t let his son come off the reservation.

I was never relayed any of this till years later, because I wasn’t at home to get his calls, and by the time I started to head back and give up…I had been attacked by a vampire. It was only luck that we fell in love, and I got to meet his brothers.

Adrian was a brother of his, only about 64 or so, he looked about 19, and he has bright blonde hair and topaz eyes as well. Though he didn't when we had met, let’s just say his eyes were redder than a clowns' nose when we met him, but we had more or less made him change over to the 'good' side, if there was even a good side for us.

Then there was cute little Sam. Sam was the youngest by far, he was the newest to this life but he had the best control, even better than me sometimes. He was only about 20, but he appeared to be no more than 17. He had black hair that fell to his cheeks and the same topaz eyes. That…off the record sometimes turned black. You see he hated the idea of feeding at all, and I was all there with him on that subject, but it was necessary. There was no way that we could get out in front of that many people and hope to perform without a high level of control.

I had been living with them for years…many…since I was changed. All of us had special powers. Damon had the ability to control the weather, which came in handy if we needed cloud cover. Adrian could more or less control the elements, all of them, that made me mad; but you'll figure out why later. Sam, cute little Sam had the most dangerous power of all of us, well for now anyway. He couldn't read people's emotions, as much as he can control them, and sometimes his emotions would take over the people he was near, and Sam had a tendency of having a bad mood now and then, and sparks tend to fly in our hours a lot due to this.

And me, I had, what I thought were the most ridiculous powers of all, I had the ability to use all of my human traits, which I guess could come in handy, well I doubt it. I could change people's appearances, including my own, which I guess is good since we can't stay on the scene for more than a couple years at a time. My final power was my ability to manipulate fire, and even create fire from nothing. It was a vampire's most powerful weapon, to be able to destroy any vampire whenever I wanted. I guess that made me feel good.

Well, in case you were wondering the guys have no idea that I was ever Bella Swan. They wouldn't since I didn't tell them. They know me as Riley, and that was that; Riley their kicking awesome lead singer.

"Rie! Hurry up we have to get to the concert before the fans, that would be the smart thing wouldn't you think?" Adrian called up the stairs. I had been ready for a while now, just lying on my bed. Yes I needed a bed for those human moments when I would fall asleep.

"I am ready!" I yelled back at him running from my room. When I reached the stairs and ran again as fast as possible and slammed into him. "And are you calling me stupid? Because I don't think you want me to go there regarding you." I said pinching his nose and getting up.

"Of course not Rie, we love you too much to make fun of you!" He said.

"It's true!" I heard Sam yell from his room, where he was probably gaming.

"But I love you most of all." I heard Damon whisper in my ear, and then I felt his arms snake around me.

"I love you too." I said reaching my hand back to stroke his face.

"Now that everyone has admitted to loving Riley, can Mythical Mayhem get to its concert now?" Aiden asked using our band name. I mean we were mythical creatures after all.

"Fine, fine." I said waving my hand in front of my face. I wriggled out of Damon's grasp and ran out to the band van. It would be soooo much easier if we could run to our show but we really couldn't leave our equipment behind. Sam slid in beside me in the back, and Aiden and Damon claimed the front; Damon behind the wheel, and we made our way to our show.

The show was just about to begin and I couldn't wait. We had all done our clothing changes, Sam, Aiden, and Damon were all wearing black My Chemical Romance type suits. (I DON'T OWN MCR) I myself was in a plaid purple and black skirt and fish-net stockings and a tight black Mythical Mayhem Shirt with a studded belt and some serious make-up work.

"Wow Riley you look hot!" Aiden screamed over the crowd as we made our way to the stage, and Damon growled grabbing me by the waist, and glaring at Aiden. Who was now backing up slowly to show he meant nothing by it.

"Thank you Aiden." I said curtly. "Are you guys ready for this?" I asked.

They all just smiled at me crookedly and I nodded, took Damon's hand and we both ran out onto the stage; both singers for Mythical Mayhem.

KK. This is just the first Chapter, but in case you were wondering, Yes Riley is Bella, and no she doesn’t forget anything that ever happened to her.

RECAP OF THE LAST CHAPTER:

They all just smiled at me crookedly and I nodded, took Damon's hand and we both ran out onto the stage; both singers for Mythical Mayhem.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

~ The Bella I am Now ~
Chapter 2 - No Air

I ran up to the mike and grabbed Damon around the waist at the same time. "Hey we're Mythical Mayhem and we've got something for you!" I screamed into the mike. The deafening roar filling my ears. I smiled. Damon took the mike next.

"Yeah! We got something good for you tonight! Some serious love songs, baby!" he yelled. Aiden ran up from his place on the stage his guitar slung across his chest.

"Well of course we all know that these songs were all inspired by our very own sexy couple here!" He said pointing at me and Damon, and I blushed. "I love your blush." He whispered in my ear making me blush again. He chuckled and I slapped his chest.I stole the mike back, ready to remedy the situation. "Well now that we all know I'm in love lets start the songs!" I yelled.

"This is called No Air, and for your information this is a song for me and Damon."

EPOV


I never expected this when I came to this concert. I never expected the band to be made from vampires, or to fine that my love was one of them. Above all I never expected to find her in love. But what was I to do. It didn't seem as though she knew I was here. I hadn't seen her in more than 60 years, and now here she stands. In the hands of another man. It took everything in me not to run up and beat the crap out of him right there. But she was smiling, and she looked happy. Regardless I let a small growl
escape my lips.

"Hey we're Mythical Mayhem and we've got something for you!" she screamed into the mike. The deafening roar filling my ears. The other male took the mike next.

"Yeah! We got something good for you tonight! Some serious love songs, baby!" he yelled. Another male carrying a guitar came and ran up from his place on the stage his guitar slung across his chest, snagging the mike.

"Well of course we all know that these songs were all inspired by our very own sexy couple here!" He said pointing at my Bella and the male, and I growled louder than last time.

"I love your blush." He whispered in her ear making her blush again. He chuckled and she slapped his chest. She stole the mike back.

"Well now that we all know I'm in love let start the songs!" She yelled "This is called No Air, and for your information this is a song for me and Damon."

Then they took each other's hand and started to sing. My Bella was first. I could feel my eyes soften upon seeing her.

Bella
"If I should die before I wake
It's cause you took my breath away
Losing you is like living in a world with no air, oh"

Just looking up at her on that stage reminded me why it was that I fell in
love with her to begin with. I struggled to stay where I was so that I
didn't run up and take her in my arms. Can you hear me bella? I love you.


Damon
"I'm here alone, didn't wanna leave
My heart won't move, it's incomplete
Wish there was a way that I can make you understand"

He was staring at her with soft eyes, much like I used to, he was in love,
whether Bella knew it or not. The song continued.


Bella

"But how
Do you expect me, to live alone with just me?
'Cause my world revolves around you
It's so hard for me to breathe"


She was singing to him, staring only at him, not even looking at the crowd.I felt my heart break. Then they both were holding hands and singing together.

Both

"Tell me how I'm supposed to breathe with no air?
Can't live, can't breathe with no air
That's how I feel whenever you ain't there
There's no air, no air
Got me out here in the water so deep
Tell me how you gon be without me?
If you ain't here, I just can't breathe
There's no air, no air
No air air, No air air
No air air, No air air"


Oh god, they were in love. I wanted to die. I could feel the lust radiating from both of them, and it almost killed me, and that's not easy.

Damon
"I walked, I ran, I jumped, I flew,
Right off the ground to flow to you
There's no gravity to hold me down, for real"


I growled at that.

Bella
"But somehow I'm still alive inside
You took my breath but I survived
I don't know how but I don't even care"


Had he hurt her? Was she still willing to be with him? Oh god, I needed to hold her in my arms. They were aching. Again they sang together.

Both
"So how do you expect me, to live alone with just me?
'Cause my world revolves around you
It's so hard for me to breathe

Tell me how I'm supposed to breathe with no air?
Can't live, can't breathe with no air
That's how I feel whenever you ain't there
There's no air, no air

Got me out here in the water so deep
Tell me how you gon be without me?
If you ain't here I just can't breathe
There's no air, no air
No air air, No air air
No air air, No air air
Tell me how I'm supposed to breathe with no air?
Can't live, can't breathe with no air
That's how I feel whenever you ain't there
There's no air, no air
Got me out here in the water so deep
Tell me how you gon be without me?
If you ain't here I just can't breathe
There's no air, no air"


They never let each others hands go, just singing in their own private world, her glossy brown hair glowing under the lights.

Bella
"(Do you expect me, to live alone with just me
Cause my world revolves around you, It's so hard for me to breathe)"


Oh my Bella. If I could cry I would.

Both
"Tell me how I'm supposed to breath with no air?
Can't live, can't breathe with no air
That's how I feel whenever you ain't there
There's no air, no air

Got me out here in the water so deep
Tell me how you gonna be without me?
If you ain't here I just can't breathe"


The song ended and they stared at each other for a moment, in the rushing roar of the crowd before turning their gaze back to the crowd. Then they turned and smiled at their band mates.

I wanted to die.

Chapter 3: Drops Of Fire
BPOV

The song finished and I turned and smiled at Aiden and Sam before announcing
the next song. "This song is called Head Over Feet!" I screamed and began singing. This was a song I did myself, no help from Damon, but I did get to sing to him. I smiled mischievously before the first words left my mouth.

"I had no choice but to hear you
you stated your case time and again
I thought about it"


I did take my time letting him know I was interested. He was just standing there on the stage as I danced over to a surprised Aiden on the guitar. I played with his hair and then danced away over to Sam, and began to sing to him.

"You treat me like I'm a princess
I'm not used to liking that
you ask how my day was"


I smiled at him and hugged him from behind, 'cause he was still playing his drums. His smiled anyway and then blew me a quick kiss that I caught and pocketed. I made my way over to a confused Damon who smiled wickedly seeing my return to his side.

"You've already won me over in spite of me
and don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet
don't be surprised if I love you for all that you are
I couldn't help it
It's all your fault"


He nodded like this was something that he knew. Swiftly he pulled me into him hugging me around the shoulders as I sang.

"Your love is thick and it swallowed me whole
You're so much braver than I gave you credit for
That's not lip service

You've already won me over in spite of me
And don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet
Don't be surprised if I love you for all that you are
I couldn't help it
It's all your fault"


I could see the crowd getting into it now, and I was swaying with the music, I wriggled from Damon hold and walked over to Aiden again kissing him on the cheek.

"You are the bearer of unconditional things
you held your breath and the door for me
Thanks for your patience"


I played with his hair again, and stood beside him swaying with the music.

"You're the best listener that I've ever met
you're my best friend
Best friend with benefits
what took me so long"


He blushed deeply remember the time we tried to give us a chance but realized we'd never be more then siblings. Then I ran over to Sam again; planting a kiss on his cheek too.

"I've never felt this healthy before
I've never wanted something rational
I am aware now
I am aware now"


He smiled wickedly again and then I waved good-bye and returned to my place by Damon. Hugging him to my side and singing to him.

"You've already won me over in spite of me
and don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet
don't be surprised if I love you for all that you are
I couldn't help it
It's all your fault"


Though he didn't blush we were way past that stage. The music drained from the room as an uproar of cheers took over. I bowed again and prepared to do my next song when a deafening roar shook the room. This wasn't a cheer, and I turned my head ever so slowing to see a pair of topaz eyes and a flash of bronze hair.

"Edward." I whispered. I felt a tug on my heart, and then my body drained in sadness as I realized that he still loved me. And that I'd never feel the same way for him ever again. I felt Damon stiffen beside me and shoot glances at the other guys when he realized that there was another vampire in out presence.

"Oh, ok guys this next song is one of my personal favorites, now get into it!!" I screamed smiling; time for some payback. The music started, and I got into the song.

"I can't believe it's really you
Been so long, you look good
I hear you're doing really well
Don't ask me, let me tell you
How I've been since when you left
Since you left me for death"


I was looking at him and I could see him physically cringe to the words. Good.

"Finally every tear has dried
I've wiped you from my life"


I looked at him, more cringing, more sadness. HA! I laughed in my head. Do you think that this can compare with what you left me?

"Do you remember all the times you said you'd call me
'Cause I remember all the reasons people warned me
And now I hear you saying that you still adore me
But if you think I'd ever get with you again
Then you can just

Love me, love me
Feed the flame
If you want me back again

Burn into the sky
Higher and higher
Baby, can you play with fire"


Ok I guess that this is harsh but I can't stop the song now, got to finish it.

"You never know just what you got
'Til it's gone, you freak out
But I'm not falling for that game
Boys like you never change
You made me feel I wasn't enough
Wasn't enough for your love

But it was insecurity that made you run
It wasn't me"


And it was his insecurity, he wasn't comfortable enough with himself to be around me without killing me. If he would have just changed me?

"So don't you sit there trying to
Give me more excuses
I don't have time for this
I'm off to play in Houston
And I'm too busy with the millions things I'm doing
You can't make up for what you've done
But you still try to be the one"


Ok, I really felt bad now.

"Love me, love me
Feed the flame
If you want me back again

Burn into the sky
Higher and higher
Baby, can you play with fire"


The funny thing is that none of us can play fire, we’re vampire….duh!

"Ooh, by the way, by the way
I've found someone who gives me space
Keeps me safe
Makes me sane
Found someone to take your place
Now I'm safe in his arms
And I decided only he can play with fire"


I saw Edwards eyes flicker over to Damon and then linger on him before he turned them back to me. I was almost finished with the song.

"Love me, Love me
Feed the flame
If you want me back again

Burn into the sky
Higher and higher
Baby, can you play with fire"


Over.

The crowd erupted into applause, and I just stared at Edward. His topaz eyes glazed over with sadness, and anger. I felt really bad That was supposed to be our last song, because the next band was going to come up, but I was surprised when the boys started playing once again, a song I'd never heard.

"This is for my Riley." Damon said and I blushed. I saw the confused look on Edwards face about the name Damon had called me, but he didn't even seem to care. "This is something me and the boys threw together to tell Riley just how much we love her, mostly me." He laughed and the music got softer, and he began to sign. His voice was so enticing.

"Now that she’s back in the atmosphere
With drops of Jupiter in her hair, hey, hey
She acts like summer and walks like rain
Reminds me that there’s time to change, hey, hey
Since the return from her stay on the moon
She listens like spring and she talks like June, hey, hey"


He took me by the hand, I knew that he was referring to the time that I had left the house in an attempt to clear my head, I had been gone for two years, I had just got back in the past week.

"Tell me did you sail across the sun
did you make it to the milky way to see the lights all faded
and that heaven is overrated"


I smiled, I could feel the tears already building in my eyes. He grinned.

"Tell me, did you fall for a shooting star
One without a permanent scar
And did you miss me while you were looking at yourself out there"


He kissed me, and I felt like I was soaring.

"Now that she’s back from that soul vacation
Tracing her way through the constellation, hey, hey
She checks out Mozart while she does tae-bo
Reminds me that there’s time to grow, hey, hey"


I blushed again.

"Now that she’s back in the atmosphere
I’m afraid that she might think of me as plain old Jane
Told a story about a man who is too afraid to fly so he never did land

Tell me did the wind sweep you off your feet
Did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day
And head back to the milky way
And tell me, did Venus blow your mind
Was it everything you wanted to find
And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there"


I nodded and he grinned again. I took his hand, the tears finally spilling over. I looked over at a shocked Edward. But tuned myself back into the song.

"Can you imagine no love, pride, deep-fried chicken
Your best friend always sticking up for you even when I know you’re wrong
Can you imagine no first dance, freeze dried romance five-hour phone Conversation
The best soy latte that you ever had . . . and me"

'I'd die' I mouthed to him. He laughed as he sang.

"Tell me did the wind sweep you off your feet
Did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day
And head back toward the milky way"


The song ended and he walked up and kissed my cheeks, kissing away my tears. Before I knew it the music was over, and I was being embraced by my brothers and my love.

"Thank you; you've been a wonderful audience!!! Remember to check out our new CD coming out soon!" Sam yelled.

"Yeah! We're Mythical Mayhem, better not forget!" Aiden said in a sing-song voice.

"You've been great!" Damon and I said at the exact same time, and we looked at each other and laughed before walking off the stage. One thing was for sure, I'd have plenty of explaining to do to Edward. Well, maybe not if I could avoid him.

And I did, I managed to ignore him through the rest of the show. That was about it though.
